HAPPY HOLIDAYS

Tuesday, December 22, 2009

HAPPY HOLIDAY'S TO ALL! IN CASE I GET A LITTLE TIED UP!WHAT A HAPPY TIME OF YEAR!ALL THE WORK WE DO AND IT IS ALL GONE SO FAST!
I REALLY WANT TO THANK ALL OF YOU FOR ALL YOUR KINDNESS TO ME AND READING MY BLOGS AND HELPING ME ALONG THE WAY. IT HAS BEEN A ROUGH RIDE BUT I WILL STAY ON THE WAGON IF IT KILLS ME!LOL
YOU AL KNOW MY STORY OF LOSING 30 POUNDS AND GAINING SOME BACK MOST BUT NOT ALL. ALL BUT 13 POUNDS THAT IS AND I AM STRUGGLING TO KEEP THAT OFF. I AM DRINKING ALL MY WATER AND EATING ALL MY FRUITS AND VEGGIES AND EXERCISING MY HEART OUT BUT MY MIND SET IS NOT THERE LIKE WHEN I STARTED SPARK AND DESPERATELY NEED TO GET IT BACK. AND THEN THESE HOLIDAY'S DON'T HELP AT ALL.
AND STRESS I AM SURE YOU ALL KNOW THAT ONE.
WE HAD OUR FURNACE CLEANED I GUESS THE GUY THAT WAS DOING IT WASN'T DOING THE PIPE THAT GOES FROM INSIDE THE HOUSE TO THE OUTSIDE THEY WERE MORE OR LESS JUST DOING THE FILTER AND AROUND THAT AREA.
WELL THEY DID THAT PLUS THAT PIPE AND GOOD THING THEY SAID IT WAS ALL CLOGGED UP SO WHO KNOW WHAT COULD HAVE HAPPENED. AND THEY ALSO FOUND OUT THAT WE NEEDED TWO PARTS. SO THEY ORDERED THEM. WELL NOW TODAY THEY ARE PUTTING THEM IN THEY SAID IT WILL TAKE ABOUT 2 AND A HALF HOURS. AND WILL COST ALMOST 500.00 AND THAT IS NOT WHAT I WANTED TO HEAR AT CHRISTMAS AND WHEN MY HUBBY GOT LAID OFF AND ISN'T GETTING HIS CHECK LIKE HE IS SUPPOSE TO AS THE STATE IS HOLDING EVERYONES FOR ONE REASON OR ANOTHER.
WELL SOME HOW SOME WAY WE WILL GET THRU THIS. HAD TO CHARGE EVERYTHING SO WE WOULD HAVE A CHRISTMAS. AND LOTS OF GOODIES AT WORK DANG SO HARD TO STAY AWAY FROM!HOPING I GET BACK ON TRACK AND REAL SOON.
SO AS ALWAYS THANK YOU FOR LISTENING TO ME AND MY PROBLEMS HUGS TO ALL AND A VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL OF YOU,

    WHAT ARE WHIMPIES? I DON'T THINK I HAVE HEARD OF THEM.
WAY TO GO ON GETTING YOUR CARDIO IN WITH ALL THE SNOW SHOVELING!!! NO DAY OF REST FOR YOU, GIRL!!
WE HAD MORE SNOW IN THE NIGHT SO I HAD TO SHOVEL AGAIN AND DIG OUT THE CARS WHERE THE SNOW PLOW BURIED THEM. ALTHOUGH IT SAYS IT'S ONLY 24* OUT, IT SURE SEEMS WARMER THAN THAT. AT LEAST WE'VE HAD NO MORE SNOW THIS AFTERNOON.
KEEP POSTING YOUR POSITIVES...AWESOME!!!
